custom copper - straight holder

custom copper - straight holder


A tool to be proud of!  I design holders that I hope will inspire you to do your best work.

I've spent months honing my straight holder design. The sculptural quality of the tail, isn't just for show, it creates a superb balance and feel in the hand.

Pair with your choice of Corian®, a beautiful marble like material with the benefit of stain resistance, (so no need to worry about dipping in ink!)

Lovingly crafted by Tom.  I make all of my pens in my studio by the sea, each one is made from solid copper, hand turned, sanded and finished on my 60 year old Myford engineering lathe.

With a bit of TLC your nib holder should last a very, very long time.  The metal on the holder has been waxed to reduce oxidisation. Over time the metal will age naturally, developing a richer, darker tone. You can choose to embrace this patina or to return it to it’s gleaming best  by dampening and using a little dish soap on the supplied polishing cloth and buffing until super shiny again!
